I have never seen a New Aire in person. I made a decision to buy based on Newmar website documentation and several on line walk through videos posted to YouTube by several dealers.
As deliver day approaches I continue to work through any documentation I can find about the coach and related systems. For a coach with so many advanced features the documentation is clearly lagging.
SilverLeaf has been in some luxury coaches for several years, so thank goodness there are a few on forum with real life experience with the systems.
I recently discovered what appears to be a SilverLeaf cockpit selector control. I saw it flash by in a couple of videos but the folks in the videos never mentioned the control. There is no mention of this control in the SilverLeaf documentation I have been able to find.
In another video I discovered what appears to be engine information which is overlaid the external video camera panel in the NewAire. Other videos have shown the same display with coach environment data over the camera and coach electrical status information overlaid on the external camera images.
Here is one overlay showing engine status information in the New Aire. It is very hard to read. I blew the image up and was able to read some of print as follows:
Retarder 0 pct (no idea what that means)
INST MPG 0 mpg
FUEL LEVEL 26 PCT
DEF TEMP 104 degF
TRANS IN 99 rpms
0 mtg (miles to go?)
0 gtg (gallons to go?)
So trying to put this all together from circumstantial evidence (no documentation) it appears there is a way to select various subsets of information from the SilverLeaf system and display that information over the New Aire camera display panel.
Even more interesting based on the image above there must also be a SilverLeaf module somewhere on the coaches network harvesting real time data from the engine as well.
In this example it appears the new New Aire coach had 1751 miles on it consuming 214.2 gallons yielding an average of 8.18 mpg. This picture came from a dealers web page so that data is most likely associated with the trip from the factory to the dealer.
For those who all ready have SilverLeaf in older luxury coaches does this all make sense?
